I had a pretty good high school experience. It wasn’t as fun as college or law school. But there are things I miss. And for sure people I miss talking to. I’ve kept in touch with a few friends. Not many. But enough to be interested in seeing them later in life. As I grow older I look at high school fondly. I wasn’t popular in high school, but that was okay. I became immensely popular in college; that was a shock. However, I prefer not being popular. I was such a book worm in high school. I used to read sooo much manga. And my final project was creating my own manga which of course I drew the illustrations too. It was far better not being popular… people leave you alone and you get to do what you wanted.
At NYU it was nice being liked. I was fairly well known among the pre-med crowd since I taught some many of them. My late night study sessions were epic. I miss that a lot. What I don’t miss is having so many “friends” I couldn’t even remember everyone’s names… I’m serious… Also, I have an excellent memory. From Freshman to Junior year my Facebook friends exploded from 150ish to 3000…. I didn’t request more than 20 friends. Before bed, I would accept 50 friend requests almost every night. During the summer time, when I was an orientation leader… it was closer to 100 a night.
And in law school I got to be head of frat. At NYU frats didn’t really exist… or at least I didn’t know much about them. At WM frats were a way of life.
Wow, I’ve really digressed. That’s what I love about blogging. It’s essentially stress free. I should blog more… instead of cramming a bunch in one night because I know I don’t have videos… and I need to hit at least 10 pieces of content a week… 🙂 I figure two more blogs after this about random subjects. I blog for myself… some day when I’m more successfully I’ll have a blast looking back at all the silly unedited things I said… and I’ll know it’s what I actually feel.
Nope. I don’t think I will attend my high school reunion. I don’t live there anymore. And my parents don’t have a home there anymore. And I’ve seen all the people I would want to see. Social media sort of defeats the point of a high school reunion. I would rather code anyways.
